Recently, an efficient optimization strategy based on the sphere decoding algorithm (SDA) has been proposed to solve the optimal control problem underlying direct model predictive control (MPC) formulations with long horizons. However, as will be elucidated in this work, this optimization algorithm presents some limitations during transient operation of power converters, which increase the execution time required to obtain the optimal solution. To overcome this issue, the present work presents an improved version of the SDA for direct MPC that is not affected by transient operations of the power converter. The key novelty of the proposal is to reduce the execution time of the SDA when the system is in a transient by projecting the unconstrained optimal solution onto the envelope of the original finite control set. As evidenced by the simulation results, the proposed SDA is able to quickly compute the optimal solution for the long-horizon direct MPC during both steady-state and transient operation of the power converter.
